    Two reasons.

    1) The left has a collectivistic centralizing tendency so of course there should be one person to speak on behalf of all conservatives

    2) A centralize voice for conservatives needs to be established so that the left can decide what insult to use. For instance, these days something like "why would you vote for someone in a party who listens to a pain killers addict/recoverying alcoholic" is needed because "racist" doesn't work as good anymore.

    Well, if limbaugh would take a voluntary drug test and pass I would stop calling him a druggie.

    I find it sad that a discussion about the most influential conservative voice revolves around entertainers.

    No you wouldn't and that's not the point and it's also none of our business.

    I'm not suggesting that opponents of Rush Limbaugh who wish to discredit him should stop referencing his drug addiction. I will suggest though that if opponents of Rush Limbaugh truly want to discredit him, they should apply reasoned opposition against things he says on his broadcasts.

    What's the point of constantly making reference to Rush's drug addiction? What is that meant to accomplish? What's the strategy? What's the reasoning?

    Wait...

    You're using "druggie" as a negative term?

    And you're saying until someone personally proves to you they're not on drugs when they previously have, then they're still using?

    Ronald Reagan.

    He's dead and he's still arguably the most influential. The majority of the radio hosts people reference continually allude back to Reagan, claim Reagan is the model for their principles and views, and use Reagan's words and views to validate their ideas. Every political candidate on the right is continually trying to be a "Reagan conservative" and referencing the man. Most conservatives long for the days of Reagan while youth are taught of him as the pinnacle of Conservatism often.

    Even dead, his voice...through the words he's left over and the legacy that continues on...is by far the most influential amongst conservatives.

    I'd say if we include the dead, Barry Goldwater should get mentioned as well.

    My reasoning is this.

    In my area we drug test the workers who work on sewers and collect garbage (Not meant to demean them, I think they do the best jobs of any government worker). In our society we test almost all of the blue collar workers and especially for the best paying jobs.

    Limbaugh influences a lot of stupid people who actually believe his propaganda. Rush is the spokesman for the evil corporate world (there are plenty of people in the corporate world who are not evil) where profit trumps humanism and ethics.

    It's plain discrimination not to test everybody in our society instead of just certain people. It's a miscarriage of justice to give some people immunities to drug testing. Test them all or none at all.

    I can pass a drug test, can you?
